Images are one of the most important parts of your web post. Especially, when you
have a tutorial blog or photography website, it becomes a must. But many a time it has been observed that due to images website loads a bit later. It takes time to load when you are adding them. Again, you don’t have anyways open. You must have to add images. What will you do then?
No, problem. Because the solution is there. A few days ago it was a quite difficult
task. But with the development of WebP by the Developers of the Google team, this
problem has vanished. Maybe you haven’t heard the word. No, problem. Everything
related to WebP will be discussed.
So, let’s have a quick start-
What is WebP?
WebP is mainly image format like Jpg or Png. But what does it give as a benefit?
Actually, it will provide you with lossy and lossless compression for your pictures. It
is said that it compresses 26% of any image compared to its png format. In the case of
Jepg, it is 25-30%. So, you can imagine the benefit.
A small History of WebP
Actually, WebP is quite similar to the video format VP8. WebP is mainly associated
with the WebM project. These WebP related works were started based on a BSD
license. The first release was on 30 September 2010. Immediately, after one year the
upgraded version released and gain much popularity among the website owners. But
there was some lacking and it vanished after the release of 11 November in 2018.
Now, you are having the lossy and lossless compression for your pictures easily with
What is The Benefit of it?
WebP is tremendous in a word. Ask me why? Because it has made the task of adding
high-quality images to your site quite easier. Some additional support for WebP
1.Lossless compression – A picture or image can be compressed easily using WebP as
we mentioned earlier. The percentage of it is near 28% compared to png.
2.Metadata – WebP also supports XMP format which quite important.
3.Transparency – WebP images may have Transparency. 4.Color Profile – ICC which stands for International Color Consortium. WebP images
are providing different Icc embedded profiles.
5.Animation – We know about animation. You will be surprised WebP images may
have multiple frames with pauses.
Those were some advantages which you are getting from WebP. I think it is a blessing
for some website owners like you. Because fast loading is a very important fact. In a
report, it was said that 40% of the visitors leave if they face the loading problem of
any website. I think you are not going to take the risk.
How does it work?
Well, Before using it, we have to know how does it work, isn’t it? Actually, lossy
compression uses predictive coding. Yeah, it’s kind of prediction. It uses the values of
neighboring blocks to predict the value for any particular block. There is some kind of
encoding like micro blocking.
Where does WebP support? Well, it is supported in Chrome, Firefox, Opera, and
many tools. Not only the browsers but also some software like Adobe Photoshop,
Gimp, or Irfanview support this format.
